The Q&A Archives: Seeds of Gerbera Daisies

Question: I would like to know how to get the seeds out of a Gerbera daisy.

Answer: Gerbera jamesonii, the Transvaal Daisy, is propagated by root division. The flowers do not generally produce seeds. If you have a Gerbera that you'd like to propagate, divide the roots in late winter or early spring, making sure that each division has 2-3 buds. These buds will grow into new foliage, forming a crown just below the soil level. When the plant becomes overcrowded after a few years, dig and divide again. For best performance, keep the flowers cut before they fade completely, and remove the leaves as they begin to look old and bedragled.
